Morning, Lunatics …
>> The Tuesday column from Heinz Field covers Pitt’s predictably ugly loss to Florida State that, even more unfortunately, came with an all-too-predictable approach.
Here’s our full Pitt coverage, by Jerry DiPaola.
>> Eighty. Travis Sawchik reports from Milwaukee.
Oh, and let’s clear this up: Eighty-one means nothing. The Pirates clinch nothing with an 81st victory, symbolically or even mathematically. The fact is, a regular season in Major League Baseball can extend to 163 games because those play-ins to break end-of-season ties count toward regular-season standings and even stats.
>> Isaac Redman will start in the Steelers’ backfield, Maurkice Pouncey is a captain, and a new punter named Zoltan has been signed. Just another day!
>> I’m off today, but back with the Steelers and back on TribLIVE Radio tomorrow at 2 p.m.
